Free NHS health checks for residents
The Mid Sussex Wellbeing team has organised NHS health checks in Burgess Hill, East Grinstead and Haywards Heath.
NHS health checks can help people get on the right path to a healthy future by spotting any potential health problems at an early stage. The free NHS health checks are run by trained health professionals and take just 20-30 minutes. Appointments are available to people aged between 40 and 74 years old as long as they are not on medication for high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, cholesterol or kidney disease.
Everybody who takes part will receive a blood pressure check, a cholesterol measurement, and will have their BMI (Body Mass Index) calculated by measuring height and weight. After the health check there will be an opportunity to discuss the results with a trained Wellbeing Advisor, who will provide personalised advice on how to lower the risk of future problems and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Appointments for the NHS health checks are available now and must be booked in advance. Sessions will be held on Thursday 8th January in Haywards Heath, Tuesday 17th February in East Grinstead and Monday 9th March in Burgess Hill. For more information or to book an appointment for a free health check call the Mid Sussex Wellbeing team on 01444 477191 or email. email@example.com.
Frack Free Balcombe Residents’ Association (FFBRA) challenged the WSCC planning approval allowing Cuadrilla to Flow Test the well at Lower Stumble via Judicial Review. The hearing took place 6/7 November and last week the decision was made known. FFBRA’s claim for Judicial Review was dismissed and the Judge ruled with WSCC.
Cuadrilla have informed Balcombe Parish Council that they have no immediate plans for Balcombe.
